This introductory chapter presents an overview of the rebellion of the northern lords against King John. The rebellion that King John faced was thus quite novel. It was the first of a long line that led through the Provisions of 1258–9 and the Ordinances of 1311 down to the Grand Remonstrance of 1641. Of all these Magna Carta was the ancestor and was so recognized by its progeny.
